Abstract

Meteorological records recorded at the Observatory, Hobart Town. Includes leafing, flowering, and fruiting of a few standard plants in the Royal Society's Gardens during the month of April, 1872. The only meteorological phenomena of this month adverse to health were excessively high daily-range of temperature and high elastic-force of vapour. On the other hand, wind-force, temperature, rainfall, aerial purity, were all propitious to health and life, and consequently the deaths in the month were one-sixth less than the average of the previous 15 years' Aprils.
